I would like to port Linux BIOS to an embedded CPU board: the Kontron 

The board has a 400 MHz Celeron CPU,  VIA VT8605  northbridge, and VIA 
VT82C686B southbridge.
I would like to know if anybody has some experience with LinuxBIOS and 
these or similar chips.
What  would be a good starting point? Is the vt8605 similar to the 
(supported) vt8601?

What about the vt82c686b?
